Volunteer

The Women’s Center will need support from volunteers to help with events, outreach, and staffing the Center from time-to-time. We conduct volunteer training sessions throughout the semester or for specific large events requiring volunter support (such as Take Back the Night). If you’re interested in volunteering, send us an email at womens.center@umbc.edu. Please note, we may not always be able to accommodate volunteer interest.

Volunteers are integral in making Women's Center events like the Clothesline Project and Take Back the Night successful.
